The National Trust has been shortlisted for three different awards because of its hard work and dedication regarding reducing its use of fossil fuels. The Trust has been rolling out projects across the UK with renewable energy at their forefront.
Under the Renewable Energy Investment (REI) Programme, the Trust is undertaking over 40 renewables projects across the country involving heat pumps, biomass and solar power, to help generate 50 per cent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.
At the edie.net Environment & Energy Awards, which recognise excellence in on-site energy, water and resource management, the Trust has been nominated in the category of On-site Energy Generation.
In the Leadership category at the British Renewable Energy Awards, the Trust was shortlisted as an organisation that is mainstreaming renewable energy through the scale of its investment and its commitment to securing its energy needs from renewables.
The REI Programme has also been shortlisted in the Business Green Leaders Awards Green Infrastructure Project of the Year category and the Fit for the Future Network, founded with sustainable energy charity, Ashden, has been nominated for the Employee Engagement Campaign of the Year.
Meanwhile, corporate partners Panasonic have been nominated in theManufacturer of the Year category whilst Good Energy are up for a Company of the Year award.
Mike Hudson, the Trust’s rural energy director, said: “By investing in renewable energy production we are reducing our environmental impact and energy bills and are planning to spend £1 billion over the next ten years on our vital conservation work around the country.
“We are delighted that our efforts have been recognised by these nominations alongside a host of cutting edge organisations and individuals, including our partners Good Energy and Panasonic.”
